India launches giant cheap food programme

NEW DELHI: The government launched a $22 billion welfare scheme on Wednesday to give cheap food to hundreds of millions of people, a centre-piece of the ruling Congress party's plan to win a third term in office in elections due by May 2014.The minority government sidestepped India's unruly parliament and resorted to an executive order to implement the programme, local media said, in a move the party believes will help it take credit for a vote-winning plan..–REUTERS
